Why we serve: From African refugee to US soldier

Spc. Alfred Kollie, a petroleum supply specialist with Task Force Wolfpack, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, checks his fuel truck June 14 on Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan. Kollie escaped civil war in Liberia and years in a refugee camp to move to the United States. "Ever since I was a kid, I loved everything about the Army and the military," he said. "I perceive the United States military as the greatest fighting force in the world, so when I got my green card, I couldn't wait to join the Army."
